Hi everyone, I thought I'd show you a really nice background kit that I purchased early last year. It's from a Canadian kit manufacturer called "Imagine That Laser Art" or ITLA for short.
I just loved this kit when I first saw it, and had to buy one for my own.







I just finished building my Southside Hotel, with a small modification to make it look a little different looking from the original design.
I switched out the half round tarp canopy over the hotel entrance, to a more elaborate hanging from chains covering.
This kit was very well designed, and went together quite well.
Here is how my version came out looking.





As you can see from the kit's box lid, it comes with many rooftop details, which I decided not to use on my version.
Even without those extra details missing from my version, I think it still looks like a very believable looking structure.

Thanks for having a look!

That's a good looking hotel, Greg. Your canopy gives the hotel a more luxurious look.

Thanks George!
I thought it helped to show off the beautifully designed hotel entrance a little better.

That's fantastic Greg. Nicely done. I wondered about these kits...Now I know they are worthy...

Very nice Greg!

But gee, not even a little background on the construction?

Any excuse for a build thread!

Thanks! Bob & Carl, for your posts.

Carl, I kinda snuck this one in quickly, while I'm supposed to be working on completing the fort.
So that's the reason for the lack of photo's or any documentation of the build.
The building part, Sure does go a lot faster not having to do all that extra stuff.
However, you do miss out in a lot of the enjoyment of sharing the build experience with forum members.

Very nice, Greg. Reminiscent of the majestic hotels of old.

Nicely done, Greg! The canopy is a nice, and necessary, IMHO, touch.
